Active Shooter/Gunman on Campus

If an active shooter is in your vicinity, quickly determine the most reasonable way to protect your life.

1. Evacuate the area if possible.
     • Have an escape route and plan in mind before attempting to evacuate.
     • Leave your belongings behind.
     • Keep your hands visible.

2. If it is too dangerous to leave the area, hide.
    • Do not remain in an open hallway or area.
    • Hide in an area out of the shooter’s view.
    • Block entry to your hiding place by barricading and/or locking the doors.
    • Silence your cell phone and/or pager.

3. Take action as a last resort and only if your life is in imminent danger.
    • Attempt to incapacitate the shooter.
    • Act with physical aggression and throw items at the active shooter.

Call 911 when it is safe to do so.
